Two 13-year-old girls were sexually assaulted on Oct. 20 after a football game at Catonsville High School, according to police.
The victims, the identities of whom have not been released, met up with an acquaintance described as a classmate of one of the girls, according to police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathleen Batton.
Batton said that the victims did not attend Catonsville High School. The school affiliation of the suspects, if any, is unknown, she said.
At around 9:30 p.m., the victims met the acquaintance near the athletic field concession stand, who was joined by three other male suspects, Batton said.
The suspects tried to persuade the victims to accompany them into a nearby wooded area, according to police.
When the girls refused to go along with the suspects, they were dragged into the wooded area, Batton said.
The suspects touched the victims inappropriately and exposed themselves to the victims, according to police.
The victims managed to escape and ran to the nearby home of one of the victim's relatives, Batton said.
"The incident remains under investigation," Batton said.
Detectives are working to identify the suspects, some of whom are unknown or known only by nickname.
